The change taking place in how jobs are found is simply startling. Job seekers need to find their place online and they need you to lead them there. CDI's Certified Hidden Job Coach & Profile Writer (CJCPW) will steer you through this maze and provide you with the tools, practical knowledge, and step-by-step processes to expand your skill set, grow your business, and empower your clients to succeed in this new arena!
In fact, there is a not-so-hidden marketing bonus to the CJCPW course for you:
While you are learning what to do for your clients to establish, clean up, or grow their online presence and perform their job search, you can apply the same tools and techniques to yourself and your business!
Our first graduate of the former course (CP-OJSRM) took this to heart and used herself as one of the final case study campaign projects. Using the tools in Module 7, she first determined her current online visibility so she could then begin ramping up her online presence so that her name and her business are more accessible online. What a silver lining - grow your skills, grow your business simultaneously...you could even expand your client base to other consultants and entrepreneurs who face the same challenges!
With the new Certified Hidden Job Coach & Profile Writer course you'll be able to nail online success for your job search clients and yourself.
Includes relevant, current content as of November 2020.
Whether you want to educate your clients in workshops or one-to-one coaching, create online identities, stay up-to-date on new industry trends, write LinkedIn profiles, and/or put together job search and career packages for your clients, here's just some of what you will be able to do when you finish this course:
Plus, a special bonus:
In short, you will have the knowledge, confidence, tools, and skill to write winning LinkedIn profiles and to direct your clients on how to navigate the online job world successfully while also boosting your own social media visibility.

The course begins with your introduction and big bonus done-for-you client package followed by recommended reading and moves into seven modules of course material with exercises for completion in each which will be submitted as part of a final portfolio of work.
I'm not going to lie - Module 7 is 71 pages long since it covers the 21 key ways to apply social networking tools and resources to the job search.
I could have broken module 7 up, but I wanted you to have a single handy resource that you could easily return to again and again. (The modules are all MS Word files).
The ninth module includes sample campaigns and instructions on creating three such campaign case studies for the completion of the portfolio. These case studies can be created on real or fictional clients, and have even been completed by students on their own personal and business identities.
Your mentor and the course creator, Laura DeCarlo, will be available via email to answer your questions and provide feedback on your module exercises.
Upon successful completion and approval of the portfolio and case studies, the certification will be issued. There is no final exam.
Any career professional, working with clients at any and all levels, who wants to write and optimize online profiles and understand how to effectively utilize the Internet for job search, online identity, career management, industry/professional/job research, and reputation management.
Remember - this course blends old and new so while you may come upon techniques with which you are familiar, we have made every effort to introduce new techniques and online spins that make the common easier, more efficient, more innovative, and more effective.
Since it is a self-paced curriculum, you can take as long as you need within one calendar year of registration. However, most students would be able to easily complete the program in approximately 6-8 weeks by committing 3-5 hours per week. There are no live class sessions to ensure you have the flexibility to work at your own pace, day or night. You will be provided with support and feedback from the course creator as your mentor throughout the program to ensure your success! Please be advised that you must maintain an active CDI membership to complete any phase of the program. Any updates created in one year of purchase will be automatically accessible.
If you are not currently a CDI member, please select the Non-Member rate below as it includes mandatory membership.

The CHJPW certification must be renewed every two years (it could be three years, but depends solely on this volatile industry) by purchasing the program update modules. Depending on how comprehensive industry changes are, the update may range from $25-300. (Higher cost will involve total program revamps, which have now happened five times since the course launched in 2005).
All requirements of CHJPW certification, renewal, and CDI membership standards must be maintained in order to earn or retain a CDI credential. CDI reserves the right to revoke a CHJPW credential for any of the following: Renewal requirements are not maintained and completed within required timelines. Membership lapses due to non-renewal.
